Jon Pardi is having an eventful 34th birthday today (May 20).
Pardi co-wrote the lead title single with Natalie Hemby and Barry Dean. “The single ’Heartache Medication’ has an ‘80s George Strait ’Fool Hearted Memory’ feel to it, and is something people can dance to,” Pardi says in a release. “That’s something I really wanted for this album. There really are no sad songs on this record-it covers a range of subjects, but is ultimately about moving on, and having a good time.”
The upcoming Heartache Medication Tour begins with a two-night stand at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 1-2. The initial month-long schedule has Riley Green supporting various dates. Tickets go on sale May 31 and every purchase will come with a Heartache Medication CD.
The announcement follows Pardi’s appearance on Sunday’s (May 19) American Idol finale collaboration with 2019 champion, Laine Hardy.
